Thin Mints: Girl Scout Cookies III

Ahhh my cookie tri-fecta is complete! I have manage to recreate all three of my favorite girl scout cookies. These were pretty easy to make and were so delicious I gave myself a stomach ache eating all of them!

3/4 cup White bean puree (navy or great northern)
2/3 cup Cocoa powder
1/6 cup Butter (melted)
1/4 cup Honey
2 tablespoons Stevia
1 teaspoon+1 tablespoon Mint extract
1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
1 bag Dark chocolate chips
1 bag Milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325. Mix bean puree, cocoa, honey and butter together, mix until smooth. Next add remaining ingredients: stevia, mint and backing soda. The batter should be pretty thick, but not clumpy. Place small dollops of batter (about half tablespoon) on greased cookie sheets and bake at 325, after 10 minutes open oven and flatten out the top of the cookies with a spoon. Return to oven for another 30 minutes. Cookies should be relatively hard, if they are not then return to oven.

In a double broiler add 1/2 bag of dark chocolate chips and 1/2 bag of milk chocolate chips. Wait until chocolate melts and add 1 tablespoon of mint extract and mix well. Drop 1 cookie into the mixture and cover with chocolate. Pick up the cookie with a spoon, remove excess chocolate and place parchment to cool. Cover all of the cookies with chocolate and cool. Chocolate should harden when cookies are ready to eat! Enjoy!
